Old habits die hard. And I plan on murdering someone before the night is through.
Killing used to be my regular gig, after all. Gin Blanco, aka the Spider, assassin-for-hire. And I was very good at it. Now, I’m ready to make the one hit that truly matters: Mab Monroe, the dangerous Fire elemental who murdered my family when I was thirteen.
Oh, I don’t think the mission will be easy, but turns out it’s a bit more problematic than expected. The bitch knows I’m coming for her. So now I’m up against the army of lethal bounty hunters she hired to track me down. She also put a price on my baby sister’s head. Keeping Bria safe is my first priority. Taking Mab out is a close second.
Good thing I’ve got my powerful Stone and Ice magic — and my irresistible lover Owen Grayson — to watch my back. This battle has been years in the making, and there’s a chance I won’t survive. But if I’m going down, then Mab’s coming with me...no matter what I have to do to make that happen.

This is is, the culmination that every fan of the Elemental Assassin series, Gin’s chance to revenge the murder of her family and finally destroy Mab Monroe.
Jennifer Estep has created quite an unique world with this series. not to mention making an Assassin the leading lady and getting us all to care for her. The world building is fantastic and the characters quite compelling, entertaining and impossible not to love.
Spider’s evenge is the book we have all been waiting for and after the events of Tangled Threads, we can all guess how this story is going to end. However, it is the journey that makes it all worthwhile and Jennifer brings out the big guns for this one. After all, killing the baddest bitch on the blog van’t be a picnic at the park, can it?
I have only a couple complaints about Spider’s Revenge. One is my usual one, the repetitive discourse throughout the novel. That utterly annoys me and can be quite frustrating.
The other was that, since we knew that the Mab story Arc was coming to an end in this book, the surprise factor as to how it all ended was almost null.
On the bright side, Team Owen fans will definitely be happy with book, as will Finn’s fans, I guarantee! Also, I quite liked how Spider’s Revenge ended, since the next novels will have a different Arc, the ending made me curious to see what’s to come.
All in all, Spider’s wasn’t my favorite in the series, but it was a nice end to the first Arc in this series. I for one am hoping for many more Arcs to come. If you are a fan of the series, I totally recommend Spider’s Revenge. If you have yet to check out the series, give it a shot =)
